LOWELL -- As a Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School, Lowell Catholic expands life lessons far beyond the traditional classroom setting.
The core values of humility, trust, zeal, compassion and simplicity are built upon through a robust and inclusive co-curricular program. Clubs and activities not only enrich the school community but enhance students' access to socialization, growth and development, and the discovery of personal talents.
At Lowell Catholic, there is a synergy between classroom and club, with co-curricular activities led by a staff member for support and direction.
From skiing to singing, from open art studio to chess, LC has a lot to offer. Each year's offerings are as diverse and varied as the students themselves. At LC students are encouraged to seek co-curricular activities that they enjoy to help them grow through teamwork and creative exploration.
To learn more, Lowell Catholic High School in planning an open house Sunday Oct. 23, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at 530 Stevens St., Lowell MA.
